In this volume of the De Soto we have
endeavored to portray, in words and
in pictures, a living year of the College.
The De Soto of 1928
IS AFFECTIONATELY DEDICATED
— T( )—
Governor Austin Peay
IN RECOGNITION OF HIS
NOTABLE SERVICE IN BEHALF OF THE PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM
The West Tennessee State Teachers College us greatly indebted to him. It is
experiencing a period of great expansion because of his friendly attitude and kindly
consideration. New buildings are being erected — a monument to his administration —
and larger funds are available for maintenance and operation, thus guaranteeing to the
students of this year and all succeeding years larger opportunities for preparation for
the important duties of life. And in appreciation there of the students and faculty of
the College are paying him this tribute of respect and affection and admiration.
RESOLUTIONS PASSED BY THE STATE HOARD OF EDUCATION
The members of the State Board of Education in their work in the West Tenn-
essee State Teachers College had come to know well Jack Brister, the only son of
President and Mrs. J. W. Brister. The Board members feel that, because of the
pureness of Jack's life, his mental alertness, and his lovable disposition, their lives have
been enriched and made better by having come in contact with this splendid young
life. We cannot understand why he must leave us now. We are thankful that
we have been privileged to know him, and we believe that even his youthful life has
made a finished contribution in its beautiful unselfishness and purity. Our deepest
sympathies are with President and Mrs. Brister; and we pray for them that comfort
that can come only from their own faith in the wisdom and final justice of Almighty
RESOLUTIONS OV THE CLASS OF 1928 OF MESSICK HIGH SCHOOL
The loss of our friend and classmate, Jack Brister, is keenly felt by us all. Jack
proved to be one of the most valuable students of Messick School. He brought to his
work a bright mind, a kind and obliging spirit, and an attitude of loyalty and efficiency
for which he was greatly admired.
The sudden death that ended his promising life was a shock to us all.
In his life he combined those rare qualities of scholarship and high minded com-
radeship that endeared him to everyone.
In his departure the Seniors of '28 have a vacancy in their ranks that can never
be filled. The entire school shares in the loss of its beloved pupil.
The Class of '2<S extends its deepest sympathy to his family, especially to his
father, mother, and sister, who so fondly loved him.
JOHN WILLARD KRISTER, }\l
June i }, rgi2-September 50, 1927
"We who must grow old and staid,
Full of caution and afraid,
Will 111 our hearts, like flowers, keep
Your imam', till we also sleep."

CAPTAIN GRAHAM CRAWFORD
"A very versatile player," is a good description of Crawford. An ideal captain
who set a playing standard that his men could work to equal. A backfield man by
choice, he played in the line when the opposition was to be halted. Crawford will be
missed next season.
CAPTAIN-ELECT HARMON "SLICK" HEADDEN
"Slick" played that 'ole wing position last season and he was hard to hold. "Slick"
played heads up and kept his teammates "up and at 'em". When backs tried to circle
his end he put the "caduvius" on 'em. We expect lots from him in '28-'29.
CAPTAIN -ELECT JOE KOCH
Joe sure knifed through to get his man behind the line. Joe was at center and
h-s addage and practice was, "they shall not pass". With Joe back next year we feel
"fixed" at center. "Slick" and Joe — what a pair!
Did they tell you bout that team we had in 1927? Well, we gave all the wise
acres something to talk about right from the beginning. You know, every year there
is one game that the Teachers just have to win — the game with a bunch o' guys they
call the Lynx-Cats. We sure had 'em scared and it looked bad tor them. But I'm
'way ahead of my story.
After all this talk, the Tigers got started and played a bunch o' guys from Jones-
boro College. It ended mighty bad for them 'cause we quit playing after making 48
tallies and they had made nary a one. It ended the same way when we played Will
May field, only we were more gentle hosts to them. We just made seven points.
They made the same number as Jonesboro. Delta State Teachers were next and
they went the way of the other two. They made 'none' points — we made 21.
Well, talk was running high. Them Cats were sure scared. Next we went to
Murfreesboro to play a bunch of 'pros'. For one quarter we were all over the field
but something went wrong — well, I "rather not hear no more bout that".
Bethel came next and they went the way of the conquered, 27 to 13. So did
Lambuth — say Rox, that sure is a "crabby" gang of Preachers. They think they
ought to be given everything 'cept the platter. To end up quick — we did, beat 'em
20 to 7 and kept the platter.
Rox, there is a fellow that they call Swartz, 'cause that's his name. He's a
clever fellow. Nothing can go wrong if you are to be entertained in his home town.
Well, he knew a man named Meriweather and we didn't, so we got six points and
they got nine. Don't tell nobody.
Well, these kittens from Southwestern were trembling by this time. But some
sort of 'ology seems to come over Teachers' teams when they play these goofs. We
just couldn't do no good with one touchdown when they got several — four to be exact
with three extra points they gives when 'er man boots the ball 'tween them posts.
We ended the season in fine fashion, though, for we took on the Pedagogues at
Murray, Kentucky. They were the biggest guys I ever saw and it looked bad for us
but we played a little "boy" who found a ball rolling 'round when somebody oughta
had it so he picked it up and with "Plutonic" effect went for the necessary touchdown
to add up 14 points — same as them.
Next year, though we are going to have a new gymn and plenty "backing" with
the same coach and two Captains. Rox, I sure do hate to think how these other teams
are going to look against the West Tennessee Teachers' College, Memphis, Tennessee,
'Til we beat everybody, so-long,
Back Roiv—Left to Right: Gaulding, Bell.
Middle Row— Left to Right: Harpole, Thompson, Wood.

CAPTAIN DOROTHY WOOD
"Dot" is without doubt the fastest side-center in "seven" .states. When Ophelia
Rot the tip-off "Dot" was the next "man" on the ball. "Plenty nice", Dot, "they'll
have to go some to get a better successor." How 'bout next year's champs?
I'm about to relate a sweet story to you 'bout how several girls — six most of the
time — completely mesmerized, pulverized, and "consuviated the piazzazzo" of all the
teams in this here territory, which all means, we defeated them all once or more times.
There is also a coach that "helped" to put all these wins across and that made seven
girls. How can six ever beat seven? We had all the others beat to begin with.
There are too many wins to tell you about specially so I'll just tell you the best.
Two teams we were after, Delta State Teachers and Ole Miss. It sure did
make my bones rattle with glee to see that big bunch go down when "Squeeky" aiul
Mattie Wood got right. They flung them goals plenty full. They had plenty help
too with 'Phelius, Dot, Skinner and the others carpeting their material. Know what
I mean? Well, we won easy.
Ole Miss came up here with "Old Blood and Thunder", but she looked like all
the rest to our Twin-Six so Ole Miss lost, too.
Rox, there wasn't a thing in Memphis that could hold a light to our girls. All
these "fast" teams looked mighty slow when we played 'em and that tells the whole
story. Here is how the season ended and also follows a list of our laurels — City
Champs, Tri-State Champs, Mississippi Valley Conference Champs, World's Free
Throw Champs (team) and Ellen Hand, our forward, is World Free Throw Cham-
pion. Some stuff. What have you we ain't got?
Still loud in their praise,
P. S. Rox, we played in the National Invitational Tournament at Wichita,
Kansas, and for us, our girls were winners though they didn't get the big cup. They
beat some big team 42 to something, I forget the rest.
P. P. S. Southwestern had a girls team but that didn't change things for us 'er
bit. We had two good practice sessions — they called the third off. Ha! Ha!
That's All for This Year,
World's free-throw champion, senior j^irls division, with a score of sixty shots out of a possi-
Rox, Ole Thing:
We had a team whut was composed of five men and had a ball that they threw at
a basket — and put it in lots too — that turned out some excitement. We played all the
good teams around here and won most of the time.
Started the season off beating Delta State Teachers 66 to 6. Too bad. Well,
we had a mishap 'bout that time and lost over half our team whut started out.
Coach Zach worked 'em hard though and got some more men and stayed in there and
fought 'em. Well, that same ology or mania came over us against them Lynx-Cats
and we just couldn't beat 'em. Two other teams in town we couldn't triumph — big
word — over either. They were the. Elks Club and the "Y" Triangles. You know,
we joined a Conference and went to play in that tournament they held at Jonesboro.
We went tripping along to the finals when we played some team — Junior Vols from
Martin, Tenn. They won, after we had led in scoring up to the last, 47 to 37.
Sure was hard but they were plenty good. Two Irishman — Mc and Mc — got to-
gether and scored, too, too many times. They couldn't out-fight a team like "Slick"
and his gang though. Rox, just read next year and know how we sunk 'em, everyone.
See you when we "fill that basket full",
The Sophomore t;irls won the Inter-Class Tournam: nt by defeating the Freshmen and Junior
sextettes twice. The }^i r K had a fast six with good pass work.
Standing — Left In Riglit: Ophelia Gaulding, Matti/ Wood Harpole, Vera Hoover, Lillian
Tucker, Genola Cunningham, Mary Skinner. Martha Pirtle, steady forward, who rn ant much
in the Sophomore victory, is not in the picture.
We got a "sweet" ball club. Odus is still flinging along with Jack Stevens. Ole
Slick is pitching and playing first when he ain't ("Steve" holds first down when be
doe.s) and "Ferg" (Jim Ferguson) is down here with us and doing his stuff. We
got "Milt" on second, "Rabbitt" on short, "Andy" on third, and Lilley and Herbert
tatching — sometimes one, sometimes the other. Spence got here too late so he can't
play 'til next six weeks. In outfield "Dubb" is in right, "Willie" in center and Odus
and "Ferg" alternates in left. When one is pitching the other plays, when they don't
( )dus plays and hits fer himself. "Eddie" Edwards is going good. All these fellows
play when they are playing good. Southwestern is next.

I.OS PICARO.S ESPAXOI.ES
During the tall quarter there was felt among the students of Spanish the need for an organization to pro-
mote the interest and study of Spanish in the college.
Accordingly, early in the winter quarter there was organized what has come to be known as l.OS PICAROS
ESPANOL13S, "The Spanish Rascals." Though the name is neither dignified nor conservative, the club has done
some splendid work, and has set for itself some noble tasks and ideals, ehie! among which is the promotion of the
Spanish to a four-year department, fitted to really prepare teachers for Spanish in our secondary schools.
Some twenty-two were enrolled as charter members, and all feel • i'ti te gratified to see their wink progress-
ing so well, .and feel assured of the position which Los Ficaros will soon come to fill in the institution. Miss
Cooper has been of invaluable assistance to ns, and we want to express to her our thanks. Charter officers were

ONE OF THE SOUTH'S BEST COLLEGIATE DANCE AND CONCERT ORCHESTRAS
This orchestra was organized in September, 1927, by Maurice Haste, who directs and man-
ages these boys, and in its eight months of playing has enjoyed a very successful season for
dances and programs played. All important social functions of the college found this orchestra
furnishing their music.
Among the outstanding dances and programs played during the year by this orchestra were:
Freshman Dance, Reserve Officer Armistice Eve Banquet, S. A. M. Dance, Christmas DeMolay
Dance, Maids and Matrons Ball, at Clarksdale, Mississippi; Hunt and Polo Club New Year
Pirate Party, Non-Commissioned Officers Club Dance, S. A. M. Banquet, Tri-State DeMolay
Conclave Dance, WMC and WREC radio concerts, concerts at Millington High School, Central
High School, Messick High School, and Shrine luncheon.

Melda Crosthwaite Secretary
Hazel Wynne Treasurer
Student government at W. T. S. T. C. is now considered an essential feature of college life
and its activities. At the beginning of the fall quarter the Council was reorganized and has co-
operated most beautifully under the supervision of the faculty advisory committee in promoting
two aims: a higher sense of responsibility and duty toward fellow students, and a real spirit
of cooperation between the student body and the faculty in the carrying out of such regulations
as are deemed best in promoting the general welfare of the college. At all times the executive
committee has for its purpose the promoting of right because it is right and has weighed very
carefully all of the problems brought before it in this manner.

The following courses, though not included in the catalogue, have been found to be very
helpful to the student and are therefore offered every quarter.
DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
Ed. 54-I. Q. — Psychology: This course is offered for students suffering from weak mem-
ories. Particular emphasis will be placed on responding promptly and correctly to Mr. Deen's
numerical roll. You will be allowed to call only one number beside your own. Students plan-
ning to be absent should make arrangements accordingly.
Ed. 8:15 A. M. — Psychology: The purpose of this course is to teach serious-minded students
how to concentrate on history in the rest room. Open to freshmen, sophomores, and juniors.
Seniors are hopeless by this time.
DEPARTMENT OF ENGLISH
English 000 — Modern Prose: Expurgated portions of the bulletin board will be read and
discussed as to style, legibility, and influence. This course is closed to all who have any prere-
English R. S. V. P. — Debating: Designed especially for those students who have had diffi-
culty in arguing the librarian out of a book before three-thirty.
English 99 out of 100 — Vocabulary Training. This is a lecture course given by Mr. Baughan.
Text: Noah Webster's masterpiece.
English 66 B. C. — Dramatics: How to chew gum without being caught. Much attention
will be given to facial expression and voice quality. Open to French students.
DEPARTMENT OF HISTORY
History 1492 — Biography: The lives of prominent S. T. C. students will be thoroughly
analyzed. Everyone taking this course will be expected to contribute at least one brand new
scandal a week. This has always proved a most popular as well as most instructive study. No
yellow slips will be used.
DEPARTMENT OF HOME ECONOMICS
Home Ec. 99 44/100% — Table Etiquette: Since old forms and manners are rapidly being
replaced by more modern and efficient ones, this course has proved invaluable. Frequent field
trips will be made to the dining hall, to Scruggs', and to adjacent pigstands in order that the
students may have the benefit of first hand information. Prerequisite: a heathy appetite.
Home Ec. 57 varieties — Costuming: The latest fashions in men's and women's clothing.
Exhibits of the garments made in the laboratory will be displayed on rat days.
DEPARTMENT OF MUSIC
Music Grrr — Chapel Singing: The purpose of this course is to teach students the accepted
methods of community singing. Class periods come at the regular chapel time. Class procedure
is as follows: talk to the girl on the row behind you while Mr. Austin announces the number.
When the pianist strikes the chord, scramble around and get a book. While Mr. Austin, accom-
panied by the piano, sings the first stanza, get the number from someone who knows it — if you
can find such a one. Now you are ready to join in the chorus with joyous abandon, fire, vivac-
ity, etc., but do not let your enthusiasm overcome you to the extent of keeping in time. No one
else does, so why should you make yourself conspicuous? At the conclusion of the song allow
the book to fall noisily to the floor.
DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICAL EDUCATION
Phys. Ed. 3. 141 6 — Sprinting: Training for dashes. Regular w : orkouts including running
through Belt Alley and dodging old men. Open to rats and freshmen.
Phys. Ed. P. D. Q. — Continuation of the above. Special practice in dashing for the street
car, chasing down Mr. Jones, grabbing back seats in chapel, dodging pn.fs. whose classes you
have cut, and bucking the line to the dining hall. This course is guaranteed to turn out bigger
and better students: sound minds in sound bodies.
Phys. Ed. 33.333 1/3 — Swimming: This course meets on rainy days, and until the new gym
is completed, the front walk will be used as a pool.
Phys. Ed. 7-1 1 — This course is designed for those who plan to take up aesthetic dancing
after graduation. Special exercise for acquiring grace and poise include cranking the pencil
sharpener, extracting water from the fountains, and elbowing to the mirror in the rest room.

AN INSPIRING CHAPEL SPEECH
Mr. Brister: YVe have with us today a prominent business man of Memphis, a man who
has the interests of education at heart and who was influential in bringing this institution to
this place. It gives me a great deal of pleasure to present to you Mr. Take It Seriously.
(Applause is expected, and so with the aid of the faculty a respectable amount of nois; greets
the Distinguished Visitor).
Mr. Take It Seriously: Dr. Krister, members of the faculty, and my dear young friends.
After that flattering introduction, I am alraid that tru- few words I have to say will prove
(Students exchang meaning looks).
Just here 1 am reminded of a stor\ that I read last week. Two Scotchmen put vip a wager
as to which one could stav under water longest. Three davs later th;v were still searching for
the bodies. Ha! Ha! Ha"!
(The speaker pauses for the hearty (?) laughter to subside).
However, I am delighted to be here and to speak to you this morning; I always enjoy
speaking to an audience of the superior type that you represent.
(Where have we heard that before?)
My dear young friends, as I look into your bright young faces, I am moved to say to you:
"You are going out to be the teachers of tomorrow. I say in all sincerity that you are the most
important people in the world ; yours is the noblest profession on the face of God's green earth.
You will have great opportunities to serve your fellow man, for, although the financial remune-
ration may not be in proportion to your worth, your influence will live in the lives of the count-
less children with whom you will come in contact, and your highest aim must always be service,
because it is only in serving one's fellow man and in being of benefit to humanity that one's life
is successful in the highest sense of the word, for 1 say unto you that success is not to be meas-
ured in terms of dollars and cents but in urms of service to humanity.
My dear young friends, I can tell by your interested faces ( !) that you are realize the value
of an education, but to make the thing more definite I am going to give you some statistics com-
piled in 1898 by the Bureau for the Propagation of Unintelligible Information. The man who
knows only the A B C's has one-nin.ty-eighth of a chance out of five thousand to rise to the
position of third assistant to the associate stamp-licker in a federal post office. Going a little
farther up the scale, we find that the man who has been to school long enough to recite ths
multiplication table backwards has two chances to get to this place. The man who has gone
through the seventh grade may count on ten and one-fifteenth chances. Coming still farther on,
the one who has gone far enough to know the second meaning of the word "pony" has fifty-nine
chances. You can see from these illuminating figures the unlimited opportunities that crowd
upon the graduates from our institutions of higher learning. But above all things, my dear
young friends, there is one thing that must not be forgotten. You will n.ver be able to render
service to your fellow man unless you have character. Character is the only sure basis of a
truly serviceable life, and when you come to leave this world, nothing will count except character.
I thank you.
(Applause led by Mr. Deen, who has preserved an air of intense interest throughout. The
happy look on the faces of the students is to be attributed not to th? inspiration of Mr. Seriously's
remarks but to the fact that the next period is far advanced).

SONG OF THE GIRLS' PHYSICAL ED. CLASSES
Bring back, bring back,
Oh, bring back my bloomers to me !
A youth seated himself in a dentist's chair. He wore an elaborate checked suit; his shoes
were loud tan with hobnail heels; his tie was a brilliant red; extreme balloon pants, of course.
Along with this equipment he had the usual vacant stare.
Said the dentist, "I am afraid to give him gas."
"Well, how will I know when the darn fool doesn't know anything?"
